We have a huge number of labs accessible for undergraduate research. Whether its biophysics in flavor through the medical school (i.e. artificial heart, limb reattachment, etc..) or maybe you might want to fabricate your own microchip in the clean room at Speed EE ,maybe travel to SLAC to work in the accelerator, build nanowires, simulate the weather on Jupiter, or whatever- there are tons of opportunities for a physics undergrad. Focus is on theoretics, undergraduate research and prep for PhD. The program encourages interdisciplinary application of your educational experience AND we have a top notch SPS group that is quite active (we travel constantly). The faculty to upper undergrad physics ratio is nearly one to one, with focus on a wide variety of topics. Plus it's affordable and accessible to all who are willing to work hard and learn. Housing is affordable-and jobs are easy to find due to the urban/ industrial environment the University of Louisville is surrounded by. Professors are easily accessible, coop and REU is encouraged. No,it's not a small school, but,.. its not huge either-just the right size to have lots of connections to other schools and institutions yet you don't feel like a number/nobody when you go about your daily business. A great value and a great experience!
